CFBA: The Election by Jerome Teel

Song Stuck on the Brain: Kumala Vista (old camp song)

(Everyone repeats what the leader says)
Flea, fly,
Flea fly flo
Kumala, kumala, kumala vista
Oh no no no not the vista
Ene mene esta mene oowah oowah a meenie
Dese mene soo la mene oowah oowah a meenie
Beet billy oat n dote n bo bo ba deet n dat n

I haven't sung this song in years. My office mate was being silly and comented that there was a flea fly buzzing his head. That's all it took, I was off kumala-ing and dote n deetn. Of all the songs I could have gotten stuck...


This week, the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance is reviewing Jerome Teel's latest book, The Election.


They seek ultimate power.
Nothing can stand in their way.

Ed Burke has waited a lifetime to become president of the United States. He's not about to let his nemesis, Mac Foster, stop him now...especially when he's sold his soul for the Oval Office.

Claudia Duval has lived a rough life. And finally, things have turned around for her after meeting the wealthy Hudson Kinney. But is all what is seems?

When a prominent citizen is murdered in Jackson, Tennessee, attorney Jake Reed doesn't want to know the truth. He just wants to get his client off. But as he investigates, he uncovers a sinister scheme. A scheme that would undermine the very democracy of America...and the freedom of the entire world.


Jerome Teel is a graduate of Union University, where he received his JD, cum laude, from the Ole Miss School of Law. He is actively involved in his church, local charities, and youth sports.

He has always loved legal-suspense novels and is a political junkie. Jerome and his wife, Jennifer, have three children-Brittney, Trey, and Matthew-and reside in Tennessee, where he practices law and is at work on a new novel.

"The Election, by Jerome Teel, is a fast-paced, highly readable mystery filled with suspense, intrigue, and political conspiracy. Teel skillfully weaves together themes of faith, family, suffering, and providence in a way that not only compels, but enlightens."
- David S. Dockery-President, Union University

Oh, dear. That is quite the song to have stuck. I finished that book yesterday, it was really good. I had some of the pieces figured out already but, it was still a great read!
